Senior Services

The New Bedford Housing Authority is committed to improving the quality of life for all of our residents, especially our seniors. We have a Resident Service Coordinator for the Elderly and Disabled working out of the Boa Vista Apartments and a Resident Service Coordinator working out of Tripp Towers. These Service Coordinators also work at our other senior developments on Caroline Street, Hillside Court, New Bedford Hotel, and Crestview.

Our Service Coordinators assist seniors with many tasks, including completing medical paperwork, referrals, and put them in contact with available services they may not be aware of. Included are visits from health professionals and other outside agencies that focus on a number of issues including nutrition and independent living.

We also try and facilitate a fun atmosphere by promoting a sense of friendship in the community; the NBHA organizes movie nights, carnival-themed events in the summer, barbecues, and holiday luncheons in our senior-oriented developments.
